The first phase of the COVID-19 outbreak was mainly focused on quick solutions and crisis management to manage the day-to-day affairs. Now we are moving into a new phase, a hybrid reality, in which we work both at home and on location. How should we proceed? And what experiences do we take with us? Companies are now redesigning their future business processes and facilities in the office. Microsoft and its partners can help organizations with this. For example, how do you ensure that colleagues from home can continue to work together well with colleagues who are physically present at the office.
Now things are working smooth, it is time for IT & security decision-makers to look to the future. Does the way employees work from home fit within the IT policy and are all company files actually safe? For example, what risks do organizations run with shadow IT? Can IT be more efficient by reducing the number of standalone software applications (which often have functional overlap) and using an integrated productivity suite?
